Remembering Volunteer Jean Duller

Long time Medical Library volunteer Mr. Jean Duller passed away on June 5, 2011, at the age of 86. Jean was such a friendly, welcoming man, and both staff and other volunteers appreciated his kind, fatherly nature. It was obvious in talking with him how much he loved his family and how important his church family was to him. I appreciated his dedication, work, and friendship. We will miss Jean.
